Suspension of the Social Security Law is Proof of the Ummah’s Ability to Bring About Change

Which Makes it their Continued Duty to be Aware and Vigilant of the Plotters

On Monday evening, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas issued a decree to stop the execution of Law No. 19 of 2016 on social security and its amendments, from its date of issue. The resolution stated the continued dialogue between all relevant parties in particular, in order to achieve national consensus on the rules of the law and its date of entry into force.

This loose and open-ended decision regarding the unjust social security law comes after the PA failed to pass it, despite its vigorous fight in the face of the mass and tribal movement that resisted the imposition of this law and demanded that it is dropped, and rejected the principle of negotiation to amend it.

In light of this, we in Hizb ut Tahrir in the Blessed Land – Palestine emphasize the following:

First: The submission of power to the demands of people is proof of their ability to change and their ability to force the regimes to retreat even from the laws it decreed, and emphasizes that the Ummah is able to achieve its goals if it trusts the will of its people.

Second, the drafting of the presidential decree was open ended and left the door open to the return of this unfair law, a sign that the PA and its leaders continue to conspire against the people of Palestine; instead of declaring complete decline from harming the country and the people, their declaration was open ended, disregarding the people’s interest and hardship.

Third: The people of Palestine are required to beware of the plotting of the PA and its men, and they need to be aware in order to stop those who conspire against them and those who try to steal their efforts and those who want to pass this law in the future.

Fourth, the people’s sense of the ability to influence the course of political life must invite them to move to support their Deen and the issues of their Ummah. As they moved for a cause that affect their livelihood, it is also necessary to move against what is being planned against their sacred places, Deen and Blessed Land. The establishment of Allah’s Deen on the land and to stand in the face of America’s crimes and its agents and to stand in the face of the surrendering projects, which instill the existence of the Jewish entity in the Blessed Land, is the mother of all duties on Muslims.

Fifth: We in Hizb ut Tahrir affirm our continuous standing with the people and their rights and their just demands, and we will continue to carry their concerns. We are from them and they are from us. The Ummah is aware that the party in its positions does not want reward or thanks. Our work is to expose plans against Muslims and to assert their right over the Blessed Land, and to guide the Ummah to the right destination to follow, and we are with it, towards liberating it from the occupiers and their tools, the agent rulers, so that it returns the best nation brought to mankind its sanctities are restored and live a dignified life filled with might and domination.
